I was raised by my Aunt and Uncle who are both teachers in EL Salvador. I was inspired by their dedication and love of teaching. I taught 4th grade in Springfield Public Schools, and 1st and 2nd grade bilingual education at Hartford Public Schools. I graduated from Bay Path University with a degree in Elementary Education and Liberal Arts. I waited a long time to become a teacher, until the timing was right for me and my family, and before teaching I worked in accounting and tax office. Teaching makes me happy because everyday is different, and I look forward to seeing my students grow and progress before my eyes. I feel fortunate to be part of Covenant Preparatory School because I feel that I share values with everyone in the school.
